The Difference Between Reading, Proofreading And Editing

Posted by:

The Difference Between Reading, Proofreading And EditingBack in the days when I worked as an English teacher, if I had been given a pound for every time I had to hand back a piece of writing to a student saying ‘read it first!’, well, I’d have had trouble holding my trousers up the pockets would have been so full. Which would have been distracting.

How Prepared Are You For Google’s Next Update? Life After Penguins…

Posted by:

First there was an invasion of pandas, and more recently we have been battling penguins. Google’s raft of algorithmic updates over the last year or so have not only been very effectively weeding out the poor quality content which has been saturating the search results for far too long, but it seems they have also been obsessed with animals beginning with the letter P.

I can only assume that in the next few months we are going to be facing an ...

A Guide To Using The Active Voice Rather Than The Passive Voice

Posted by:

A little boy kissing a little girlOne of the things which you should avoid when creating content for websites, writing blog posts or developing any other web content is the passive voice. It’s often been said that the passive voice is weak, and research suggests that some people find it harder to understand than the active voice.

But whilst the recommendation is to write in the ...

Why A Good SEO Article Should Be More Like A Wagon Wheel

Posted by:

Why A Good SEO Article Should Be More Like A Wagon WheelI like Wagon Wheels. You know what I’m talking about don’t you? Those delightfully huge biscuits with a marshmallow layer, and then covered in chocolate. Too large to dunk, but definitely one to grab from the plate when it comes round.

Whilst enjoying a quick Wagon Wheel moment earlier I ...

How SEO Article Writing Has Come Full Circle By Moving Forwards

Posted by:

As the online world becomes increasingly social, with Google now indexing Facebook content, personalising results, analysing traffic from social media platforms and taking visitor behaviour into consideration it’s important to be aware of how this all affects SEO article writing.

In the past it was very much the case that most article writers were producing content predominantly aimed at the search engines. This involved creating content which included an abundance of keywords, the aim of which was to appeal to silicon ...

How To Find Out What People Are Really Wanting To Know

Posted by:

In my previous post I mentioned how it was a good tactic to find out what questions people were asking in relation to your topic or keyword, and then use these as the basis for SEO articles. What I didn’t mention was precisely how to go about finding out these questions, although I gave some general pointers.

Today I’m going to share a quick tip with you for quickly grabbing a list of questions people are asking right now in relation ...

How To Come Up With New Ideas For Useful SEO Articles

Posted by:

For an article writer one of the hardest tasks is trying to think of a new angle or coming up with new content on a subject you may well have been writing about for quite some time.

But one of the most common reasons for this problem is that all too often article writers try to come up with answers, without really thinking too much about the question.

Oh, there’ll invent a question, and probably either include it in the article title ...

The Importance of Titles in Article Writing

Posted by:

Why are titles so important when writing articles for online marketing? Surely a single line of a few words can’t make a whole heap of difference to a search engine? If the article is packed full of the right stuff, then isn’t a title just a little bit like the envelope a letter comes in? Something that’s perhaps glanced at briefly, but ultimately fairly unimportant?

What’s the Proper Length For an Article?

Posted by:

How long should an article be? It’s a simple enough question, but often depending upon who you ask, you’ll get a different answer. Why is this? The reason is because an article should be exactly as long as it needs to be. The real question is not how long an article should be, but what you want it for. Once you know that, then the length becomes either wholly irrelevant, or reasonably self evident. Let me explain a little further.

Creating Article Writing Tips For Articles With “Dull” Subjects

Posted by:

Some UK article writers get to write about the latest bikini fashions, the latest Porsche or pizza toppings. But sometimes article writers get challenged, having to write SEO articles about subjects such as men’s socks, wallpaper paste or nipple pads. Writing articles on exciting subjects can be fairly easy, and fun, but how do you go about creating interesting search engine optimised content on subjects that may be considered ‘dull’ and less sparkling?

Clearly a basic description of the product may ...
